Children's literature emerged as a distinct and independent genre only a little more than two centuries ago. Prior to the mid-eighteenth century, books were rarely created specifically for children, and children's reading was generally confined to literature intended for their education and moral edification rather than for their amusement.

EDWARD YOUNG, NIGHT THOUGHTS (COMPOSED 1797) Although there are no extant documentary records of the contract, it was probably in late 1794 or early 1795 that the publisher Richard Edwards commissioned Blake to illustrate a new, deluxe edition of Edward Young's long meditative poem, The Complaint, and the Consolation; or, Night Thoughts, first published in 1742-45 and generally known by the short title of Night Thoughts.
